The school counseling program is designed to promote academic, social/emotional, and career development. As an integral part of the K-12 school system, school counselors build a foundation for learning based on:
  • Positive attitudes toward school and learning
  • Personal responsibility
  • Respect for self and others
  • Knowledge and skills for employment
Research indicates that a comprehensive school counseling program:
  • Improves academic achievement
  • Enhances educational and career planning and school-to-work transition
  • Fosters positive attitudes toward school, learning, and work
  • Increases acquisition and application of conflict resolution skills
  • Decreases dropouts
